Gmail is my favorite text editor. It autosaves (in the cloud). It's browser-based. All I have to do to share with a friend is press send.
But opening a new window is difficult - especially while browsing elsewhere or using a different app.
And the New Message window, once opened, cannot be collapsed into a narrow column. It's a little clunky.
Also, it tells all (or none) of my friends I'm awake.
Is there a web app (or client) that is compatible with Gmail (maybe even has chat), and functions as a minimal text editor?
